I'm new to the Karis Group, but so far they have been super nice and eager to help me. Thanks Ashley.
looking forward to response from my message!
Is the Karis Group and Health Insurance Company that pays for healthcare are do they get paid only to help reduce the prices for your doctors visits? What is the cost of their insurance or service? There website confuses me.
Hi there - Having a hard time getting a hold of someone over the phone...😟
They work for you not the Insurance companies!!
We would like to welcome the team at The Karis Group to the Fast Slow Motion family! It is an honor and pleasure to work with you to customize and enhance Salesforce!
Great customer service and they always know what’s going on
Professional and knowledgeable patient advocates doing their best to get HUGE hospital bills reduced.
Last week I traveled to Austin to speak with leaders from @thekarisgroup. THIS IS A LOVE-BASED COMPANY! Together, we dove into the ten principles of a love-based culture and explored balance and self-awareness in business. Thank you Zac Jiwa CEO of The Karis Group for being committed to love-based leadership. I would LOVE to talk to your team too. #lovebasedculture #teammeeting #lovebasedcompany #newbook #mustread
Hello; I would like to request that a member dashboard be set up. I have been trying for days to contact someone from this group who called to inform me my credit card can't be charged. I have very limited availability by phone during the work day.

She promised to send me a link where I could update my credit card information, but I have not received one. It is ridiculous in this day and age not to have a way to do that online. As I have rarely used this service and even when I have the results were not entirely helpful, I'm seriously considering discontinuing to keep it.

Thank you for your attention to this matter. I have submitted an email through your website as well.
